Having played a match recently which finished 11-9 in the 5th set with both of us blowing numerous match points I came to a conclusion, which seems to be against what most people believe....I play tennis quite competitively, and have realised that I am much more tense when I am match point down rather than match point up. Most players seem to choke when they have a match point, or serving for a match/title. I am completely the opposite, if I\'m serving for a match I am relaxed and play my normal game. If I\'m down match point or my opponent is serving for the match I tighten up, and instead of playing my normal game I focus solely on not making an error.
Anyone have any opinions on the matter, I can\'t really get my head round it
